EMILY’S BIRTHDAY BASH

I love birthdays, whether it’s mine or someone else’s. I swear, it’s gotten more out of hand the older I get. There’s just something about taking the day (or week, if we’re being honest) to celebrate!

I’m all about pampering and treating myself for my birthday. While many people don’t make a huge fuss about their birthdays, I, for one, think they are something to acknowledge (and it’s also a great excuse to eat plenty of cake!)

With the help of lots of birthday gift cards and some extremely awesome and generous companies that I’ve partnered with, I present to you the biggest, most fabulous giveaway I’ve ever hosted! I wanted to celebrate with you, my lovely readers, and show my appreciation for you all. This is a very special giveaway that took a lot of time and energy to arrange, so I really hope you all like it!

While I was in Hong Kong, I kicked off the birthday festivities with a giveaway with dresses, shoes, and bags. I received hundreds of entries and dozens of messages about how much you liked that giveaway. So, I decided to do something similar for my birthday giveaway.

The winner will be receiving everything that I’ll be wearing over my birthday trip plus a few of my favorite things. Let's get down to it, shall we?

The good stuff (all the dresses, shoes, and bags):

* Needle and Thread dress

* Lilly Pulitzer Easton dress

* Lilly Pulitzer Mila dress

* Kate Spade daisy garden midi dress

* Kate Spade embroidered chiffon dress

* Mansur Gavriel circle crossbody bag

* Cult Gaia Ark bag

* Mar y Sol tote

A little something extra:

And the icing on the cake, your choice of either of these dresses:

Here’s how you can enter to win it all:

Due to the nature of this giveaway, I will be unable to send the winner a gift card in lieu of the items shown. Sorry for any inconvenience caused!

This giveaway will end on June 18 at 12 PM EST. Good luck!

Update: Congratulations to Kate Scott!

FAQs:

How can I increase my chances of winning?

I always give the option of extra entries for those of you who are interested. For how to get extra entries, see the giveaway rules above. This is your best bet for increasing your chances.

How many times can I enter?

As many times as you’d like! I try not to impose a limit on how many times you can enter.

What if I don’t like some of the items in the giveaway?

Usually, I’d just happily give you the amount for that item on a gift card; however, this giveaway is a bit convoluted, so I won’t be able to be as accommodating. In the event that your size or color preference is unavailable, a substitute item will be chosen.

Can I split the items/send them to different addresses?

If it were a smaller giveaway, I wouldn’t mind doing so, but unfortunately, I will not be able to do that this time around.

When and where will the winner be announced?

The winner will be chosen and announced within a week of the giveaway ending.

The winner will first be contacted via email or DM, depending on which platform he/she entered on. Once I’m in touch with the winner, it is then announced on the blog on the giveaway post.
